Farewell Mike & Kari - Hello Max

 Mike, Eddie and Jake (above).

 We all enjoyed a lovely farewell dinner for Mike at the Tocumwal Golf Club.

Sadly the time to say goodbye to Mike came round way too quickly. Only seemed like yesterday that he arrived for his Australian summer holiday at SportAviation. Very much looking forward to seeing you again next season Mike.

A warm welcome to Max (below) who came with us to Cobram to farewell Mike when he caught the bus to Melbourne.

 Great to see Bracey (below) back flying the EuroFox.

 Farewell also to Santa's little helper (above) with Eddie, Max, Johannes, Jutta, Bracey, Marg and Kelly. Yes, it was Eskimo pies all round on Kari's last evening here. Kari has enjoyed some terrific flights in JJ over the past five weeks or so. We can't wait to see you again next season Kari!
